Call me crazy, but I’m never voluntarily retiring from legal nurse consulting. The only way this Elvis is leaving the building is if my Executive Team tasers me, then sets me out on an ice flow. Luckily, between global warming and Houston’s fairly tropical climate, there aren’t many ice flows nearby, so my days of looking over my shoulder for polar bears won’t be happening anytime soon.
But I can’t help but notice that way too many people are rushing to retirement and for what? To play Candy Crush and watch funny kitten videos on YouTube? I’m not suggesting these are my only retirement options – there’s always climbing Mount Everest or reforming healthcare in all that newly found free time instead (LOL).
But since I’ve got more Certified Legal Nurse Consultants to train, today I am going to celebrate the joy of labor. I know this is hardly a trendy or popular opinion – especially from those of you counting the days until your white cake and un-spiked punch retirement party.
But I’ll say it anyway. I LOVE WORKING (And I love helping others work too, just ask Tom). I still love the thrill of a medical malpractice trial and Certified Legal Nurse Consultants make my day when you message me about how much fun you too are having.
I’m not taking this so far as laboring on Labor Day. I’m in the Napa Valley this weekend with my husband and best friend enjoying the vines, the wine and a few favorite restaurants. But I’ll be back at my desk bright and early Wednesday morning rejoicing in the right and privilege to labor. I hope you’ll join me.
I’m just sayin’
